Reason why The goal Trent Alexander-Arnold scored against Fulham was called an own goal for Bernd Leno during Liverpool vs Fulham match clash

After a decision from the Premier League adjudication team, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s goal against Fulham was given as an own goal by Bernd Leno.

The Reds broke the tie in the first half with a beautiful flying free kick from the 25-year-old. Alexander-Arnold hit the ball from the right side of the box over the wall and into the net after it bounced off the bar.

The former Arsenal goalkeeper seemed to block the shot, so it didn’t count as his second in as many games. His first was the equalizer in the draw against Manchester City.

But around the middle of the second half, it was decided that the German goalie had scored an own goal.

As stated on the Premier League website, the ruling was made because “the ball came back off the bar and hit the ‘keeper before crossing the line.”

Alexander-Arnold’s goal was one of two great ones scored by Jurgen Klopp’s team in the first 45 minutes on Sunday. Alexis Mac Allister, who the Reds signed in the summer, scored their first goal with a great strike.

But the Reds’ bad defense let the South London club push the hosts back twice, first through Harry Wilson and then through Kenny Tete, who wiped out Mac Allister’s beautiful goal.

This is bad news for Alexander-Arnold because he thought he added to his growing list of great set-piece efforts. The young player from the school has already scored great goals against Chelsea and Crystal Palace during the title-winning season. He also scored his first Champions League goal against Hoffenheim during qualification in 2017.
